Tyrec Nance, 11, left, and Laine Adams, 6, both from Fayetteville, work Thursday on digging holes for tomato plants at the community garden next to the Yvonne Richardson Community Center in Fayetteville. The garden program is just one of the many after school program offered at the center.

Heavy rain may have kept people at home Thursday, but there was no lack of ideas offered by a handful of residents for the future of the Yvonne Richardson Community Center.
